The prefect combination of safari and beach for those on a limited time frame or just wanting a short safari followed by a fantastic beach break. This sample itinerary visits Tanzania’s largest game reserve, where you can enjoy game drives and walking safaris as well as thrilling boat safaris: activities are arranged on a daily basis and what you want to take part in is entirely up to you! The Selous has an incredible variety of wildlife, including lions, leopards, hippos, elephants, buffalo, zebras, giraffes, impalas and a healthy population of the critically endangered wild dog. Other wildlife highlights include wildebeest, eland and over 400 species of birds.

Your tented room will give you the feeling of an authentic African safari, whilst still providing home comforts, with the expert guides always on hand to share their passion and expertise of the wildlife and flora of the surrounding area. Following your safari adventure (and a short light aircraft flight later), you will find yourself relaxing on some of the best beaches in the Indian ocean with a drink in your hand and without a care in the world! It is entirely up to you how you spend your time in Zanzibar, as there are a myriad of activities to choose from, from water activities to inland visits to Stone Town and the Jozani forest. Whether you will be able to tear yourself away from the crystal-clear waters and sun-lounger, now that is a different matter…
